I'm not an American but I don't hesitate to say that I'm concerned (maybe afraid) as to what happens if Trump loses the election as he continues to claim that if he does it will only be because of vote rigging, and therefore he won't give up the keys to the WH. While on the one hand I would enjoy seeing the Secret Service slap the cuffs on him if it comes to that, I wonder what powers he could try to invoke that might lead to some seriously scary events. His obvious narcissism will likely be the driver.

I think that if the police threaten to arrest him he will give up the keys. But the wild card now is on whether the police will move against Trump if he'd defeated.

Fascist states are born when the police and military take the side of a defeated candidate in an election. Or by revolution but we can probably safely say that the American people won't rise to that in the foreseeable future.
